The Great Library of Palanthas

Astinus' Office

Dominating the center of this room is a massive birch desk. Legend claims this desk has supported the thousands of volumes of history Astinus has recorded. A large pot of ink, a container of sharpened quills, and a candelabra complete the desks decorations. Small windows line the room, allowing light to trickle in and gently illuminate the entire room. A comfortable couch rests against the west wall. Tapestries hang on the walls between the windows. Shelves line the walls, filled with tomes of the more recent records of heroes and villians upon the face of Krynn.

The librarian notices you aren't reading anything... Astinus hands a metal bound tome to an Aesthetic standing by you. You note the spine bears the word 'Xizegue' scribed in faded orange ink. As you glance down at the page you read..

From the pages of Xizegue's book..


Author: Xizegue Date: Fri Aug 28 18:50:51 2009 Subject hard times I woke up this afternoon in a ditch, after a long day and night of drinking mixed with other mood altering drugs. My butt hurts. I must have blackout out after downing that barrel of ale and eating that handfull of shrooms and weird fungus. i dont remember much, but my face tells me i got into some scuffles and didnt come out the victor. I worry one of my targets may have had some strange form of punishment for my actions. *rubs his butt* I must now make my way to the temple, and explain my actions to mishakal, she will not be pleased. Must stop drinking....... -Xizegue Author: Xizegue Date: Mon Sep 14 03:10:07 2009 Subject The Xizegue story I grey up in palanthas, and as a child i spent many days playing on its streets. It was a fun city and always interesting to explore. Both my parents were great Minotaur warriors. They never planned on having children, not because they didnt like them, but becuase their life style didnt allow it. As warrior's they spent many hours a day training for battle. They couldnt have a child distracting them from fighting. Not only that but a child could be a liability to them. i was lucky to survive in my mothers womb at all, since she never took a day off from training or fighting all through her pregnancy. They had been traveling through palanthas the day i was born, and knowing the travels let lay ahead of them, they gave me up to the local orphanage run by a church. so there i grey up, i had 13 brothers and 15 sisters. I had a good life there, free food, clean water, what else could you ask for. To help the church raise money i spent alot of time on missions spreading the word of Mishakal. i have always liked to help people, and have been a cleric of mishakal since the age of 5. i moved out of the orphanage at the age of 18, and have spent my life traveling the world.
